Chapel with Undulating Roof by Steyn Studio

The chapel, located on the Bosjes Farm in South Africa's picturesque Witzenberg district, was a collaboration between Steyn Studio and South African studio TV3 Architects.
 Its characteristic white canopy was conceived as a "lightweight and dynamic structure which appears to float within the valley" and pays tribute to the historic Cape Dutch gables dotting the rural landscapes of the Western Cape. The roof rises and falls to create a sinuous outline around all four facades and at certain points, the form dips to almost touch the surface of a reflective pond surrounding the building.
